Also, an instrument which practically everyone in the world claims to play, yet only a precious few are any good at it. Just because you can play power chords, tune in drop-d, or get weird sounds using a ton of effects, doesn't make you a decent guitarist (don't get me wrong, there are a lot of interesting things that can be played in alternate tunings including drop-d that can't be done in standard tuning, but that isn't usually why they are used).
Nowadays companies such as Warmoth allow players to build custom guitars that will look and sound the way they want, however a basic knowledge of tone woods is required and they don't guarantee that the guitar will sound good when put together.

2. An istrument, which many pick up, but rarely learn to play properly. Most people who play guitar do not know musical theory, which is needed to properly harmonize chords and melodies and create diverse musical patterns, which is needed to produce music that is pleasing to the ear.
2. An instrument which can either be used for good or evil.
Good-In the hands of one pure of heart, the guitar becomes a living, breathing, extension of himself. Through countless hours of practice, studying one's theory, and tapping into his or her own musical center, the guitarist becomes adept at playing and can inspire any emotion in a listener with a single lick.
Evil-In the hands of a corrupt heart, the guitar is a terrible thing to behold. Though it is an unfortunate thing, guitar is mostly used for evil nowadays. An evil guitarist will usually not take time to learn to play, and will use the guitar mainly to try and get girls to like him or play senseless excuses for music with 2 power chords to further propogate the evil music movements we have now.
